Animated food?

Animated food is inane. Note most are male? What's with the mustaches. The best way to teach children the names of food is while they are eating it. My grandson at 17 mos does like peekaboo barn tho the animal depictions are poor.

Is It Any Good?

PEEKABOO FRIDGE is an educational game that capitalizes on the simple concept of peekaboo. While this worked wonderfully with farm animals, it doesn't work quite as well with food items. Farm animals are very popular with babies and toddlers, with animal names (and sounds) being some of the first words many toddlers learn. On the other hand, food labels are usually not. By the time kids start to learn food names like broccoli, they may have outgrown the game of peekaboo. Although the app gives the food items human or animal qualities, it's still not quite the same.

In terms of learning, it only labels each food item once, and tapping on the food or word only closes the refrigerator door instead of repeating the word, so parents may want to provide reinforcement.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
